​Growin Up

This song is by Auburn.

See my girl sitting alone
Went to ask her girl what's wrong
Seen her starin' at her phone
She said I'm havin' problems at home
I said I know what your going through
She said no I don't think you do
'Could tell she wanted me to go away
But something said no Auburn stay
I said just tell me what's on your mind
She said no I don't have the time
I said well can we at least pray
Then she turned around to say...

-Chorus- (Repeat x2)
Growin' up was real hard for me
Watchin daddy beat mommy till she bleeds
I was young but I still stayed by her side
Now I cry and I pray to god but I wonder why...

I said girl I had no clue
She said yeah, well now you do
I watched her as she checked her hair
She said I gotta be some where
I said well where you headed to?
She said somewhere with this dude,
I met him at the club last night,
I don't really know 'em but he seems right
I said well girl what is he like,
I don't think you should be alone
She said don't worry I don't trust no man,
I learned that from livin' with my dad
I ain't my mom's I'll be just fine
I'm just tryna go an get mine
I looked at her like she bumped her head
Then she turned around an said...

"Growin' up was real hard for me"

-Cellphone rings-(talkin/singing)
(Girl) hello
(Boy) where you at? you ready
(Girl) yeah, I'm outside
(Boy) I brought my homies, that's cool?
(Girl) guess it's all right
(Boy) you all by yourself?
(Girl) yeah
(Boy) sure ain't nobody else
(Girl) yeah
(Boy) ight I'm on my way
-Hangs up-

Can't you see what's goin' on
They tryna get you all alone
She said that's usually how it is,
You're treating me like iam a kid
I said girl you just turned 18,
About the same age as me
She said girl I don't need your help,
I'm doin' fine all by myself
I said well don't get help from me
Can we please get on our knee's
Please before you go that way
Can we please kneel down an pray

-Praying-
Father, we come to you whole heartedly
And I ask that you hear our pray
And you give her the heart and the mercy
To look past her father's mistakes
Just as you have been mercyful to her all of these years
But I know you see what she goes through
And I know you've been tryna reach her
But god she was deaf'nd and blinded with hatred
But now she's here lord and we're ready to listen
She's ready to listen
Amen

Your body is my temple
An you're a precious jewel
Don't let no one take that away
I know just what you go through
Cause every night I heard you
It's just you couldn't hear me
So don't worry bout your mother
Or your little brothers
I took them just to ease their pain
But I love you just to use you
I see how he abused you
But all of that will change today

-Chorus- (Repeat x2) (fades away)
Growin' up was real hard for me
Watchin daddy beat mommy till she bleeds
I was young but I still stayed by her side
Now I cry and I pray to god but I wonder why...
